Monthly Board Report

Board, Aon announce new plans for retiree health care marketplace

In an effort to improve choices in the health care marketplace, OP&F and its health care partner, Aon, have worked several months to secure CareSource and AultCare, in addition to the carriers already available to pre-65 OP&F retirees. These plans will be available to pre-65 retirees for the 2020 open enrollment period, which begins Nov. 1, 2019. The James Cancer Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital, both in Columbus, participate in the CareSource network.

Starting in May, Aon will have representatives at OP&F headquarters to provide retirees assistance with their coverage, as well as help prepare for the 2020 enrollment period.

Deadline to enter trustee elections approaching

OP&F members who wish to run for one of three positions on the Board of Trustees must have the required nomination materials submitted by Monday, April 1. This year’s elections will select an active police, active fire and a retired fire representative to the Board for four year terms commencing in June. Completed petitions and certificates of eligibility are due to OP&F by 4 p.m. on Monday, April 1. Once certified, ballots will be prepared, mailed and counted by an independent election administrator with results announced in late May.

Current value (3/19/19): $15.6 billion
